I'm not sure if this is a common thing around here but I can't help but want to ask it as I experience it more and more.
I've had a few truly memorable instances that I can name. When I was young (like, before puberty) I remember a dream where I was walking through my elementary school yard and I felt the heat of the sun on my back; just my back, nowhere else, which seemed peculiar since why would that one part of me, while lying in bed, be that much more significantly warm than any other?
A few years later I remember another dream where I got in a somewhat silly scrap with one of my middle school chums and while I had a hand around his throat, I couldn't exactly see what he was doing, but I remember an extremely unpleasant sensation, as if I'm being jabbed incredibly hard in my taint. I experience a similar sensation occasionally after sneezing particularly hard, but I don't remember it ever occurring consciously until I was in my twenties.
Lately, at least twice, I've had dreams wherein I am horrified to find that my teeth have been broken, like half of their length has been haphazardly sheared off, and I can run my tongue over them and feel, with incredible detail, how awful their jagged, shortened stumps have become.
Does anyone else experience dreams where you can experience a tactile sensation, whether pain or otherwise, that would make you laugh in the face of anyone who says "It's only a dream, it can't hurt you."?
